7:10 am
va jarrett called up allies to say we're not dropping the assault weapons ban. what's important to keep your eye on on that the president is nt is the for the assault weapons ban but it's also part of the negotiation in convincing some s of these moderate democrats and even maybe some republicans. they need to push for that so need to that if the ultimate deal that if doesn't include that it's a imate part of the bargaining process it's so that a moderate democrat can say, well, yes, i voted for an mo ultimate package, but to their for nra friends they can say but i didn't support the assault weapons ban. nra i d it's all part of the dance we're about to start to get into here. >> does the president and the administration believe because of mayor bloomberg and gabrielleh giffords and because of what happened at newtown this time the odds are shifting in their ga favor, notwithstanding the resistance? >> yes, they believe the odds are shifting in their favor but yes, the they don't believe the odds haveg i shifted wildly in their favor. it's still an uphill climb and particularly on an assault a weapons ban but to show you how lt the politics have shifted it's basically conventional wisdom
7:11 am

7:15 am
prosecutor would have to retake up a case that's been dropped e and it's unlikely.probably >> who he might implicate and >> how d how deep might this scandal go? >> the reason he would implicate people is to get his ban reducedet his and to do that he can't just can't confess to what has already been out there. he has to implicate new people he has and that would mean the highest levels of the international cycling union, pat mcquade, the rnational cy head of the international cycling union who are very s powerful people in world sport.s one >> one thing to confess to doping, but another thing to trydoping. to intimidate people and nd threaten them. how how profound and how serious are serious are the allegations of that? allegatio >> extremely. of i think that's one thing that makes this case very different is there are people who have really been ruined because of e people lance's aggressive attempts to keep them quiet or to drag them attempts into court. when he knew they were telling the truth. into and i've been talking to a lot were of people like that and i think there will be no closure for a of lot of people no matter what that. unless he makes apologies to
7:16 am
very specific people in very makes specific ways not just about his own doping.s to specifi >> i'm just focused on what chip said at the top of his piece, that he's offered to pay $5 5 million and they turned him he down. >> he's offered to pay $5 >> he' million and they're sitting ay there saying we can take much million more -- you're going to be be giving us much more than that mu anyway, so why take $5 million why when you're going to get $30 g to get million or $120 million, it's just like you offered you a $1 if i owed you $100. >> wow. >> what has it done to cycling? >> only in america where it was a big sport when lance armstrong was competing and it's a huge sport sport in europe it e devastated. it's the crescendo of 100 years . of doping and i don't think it will ever be the same. >> thank you.morning's britain's "telegraph" report office the latest violence in syria. more than 80 people killed by explosions. most are students who died on aleppo. the first day of final exams. the assad government blames the

8:01 am
king and norah o'donnell. we're following breaking news out of london where at least two people were killed when a helicopter crashed into a construction crane. the chopper hit the street in flames in the middle of rush hour and elizabeth palmer is at the scene. elizabeth, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. well, two people were killed, and we've just had confirmation that one of them was the pilot of the helicopter. 13 other people have been treated for injuries. the impact sent these massive pieces of flaming debris crashing down into the streets in the middle of rush hour traffic. people scrambled for cover. a lot of them thought it might be a terrorist attack. but the police and fire crews responded very fast, and they reassured people, no, it was an accident. no word yet on what could have caused it. although witnesses report it was foggy this morning at this time and also that the helicopter was being diverted from its original landing destination to another one. while they started out this
8:02 am
whole area is going to be closed, and, of course, there's another challenge and that is to take down the enormous construction crane which at the moment is dangling down the side of that unfinished building and looking very unstable indeed. charlie and norah? >> elizabeth palmer, thank you. and the ntsb is sending a investigator to japan where a boeing 787 was forced to make an emergency landing this morning. the 137 passengers and crew had to use the emergency chute. there were battery problems and a burning smell in the cockpit. japan's two major airlines have temporarily grounded their 787s, 24 in all. the new airliner has had eight recent problems including a battery fireworks a cracked windshield and fuel leaks. the faa say this latest incident will be include in its comprehensive review that began of 787s last week. lance armstrong was once a
8:03 am
high-flying cycling champion and the media could not get enough of him. once again armstrong is the focus of the pop culture world after he admitted to oprah winfrey he used performance-enhancing drugs. oprah confirmed armstrong's confession to us yesterday. >> i thought he had certainly prepared himself for this moment. i would say that he met the moment. >> just past 8:00 yesterday morning oprah winfrey appeared on "cbs this morning" to share details of her highly anticipated interview with controversial cyclist lance armstrong. >> i would say he did not come clean in the manner that i expected. it was surprising to me. >> by 10:00, the airways were filled with outcries and opinions. >> when anybody accused lance armstrong of doping, he came at them very harsh, very critically, and i think -- >> everybody knew. the riders knew. the cyclists knew. where was everybody? >> i think the 50% who forgive
8:04 am
him will never forget. it's the lying. >> though some are still backing armstrong, praising his philanthropic work. >> is the fact that he did so much for cancer, does that mitigate against this? >> let's not forget all the good this man has done. >> others condemn the former champion for his denial and deceit. >> the one-time hero lance armstrong is now a disgrace to humankind. >> i said he's a weasel. >> his livelihood could be determined by our legal system. >> i'll tell you. what tough road ahead, maria. possible lawsuits, fraud. it's going to be tough. >> thank you so much. >> but the court of public opinion isn't likely to rest its case for quite some time. >> the interview supposedly lasted for close to three hours. so it's sort of like a regular interview but on steroids. >> the man is a hero. he beat cancer. then he went on to beat something even less popular, the french.
8:05 am
>> and the number one other lance armstrong revelation admitted to doping just to get on "oprah." >> you know, it's interesting. you walk down the street. i hear very few people that are in the middle. people are either here or they are over here. so after the interview on thursday night, i'm curious to see how many people's opinions will change one way or the other. i can't wait to see it. i can't wait to see it. >> it's an incredible story that someone could be so high and fall so low. >> starting this weekend president obama's limousine will carry a new license plate, taxation without representation. like all of the license plates they started using the slogan in 2000 to protest washington's lack of a voting member in congress. it will stay on all of mr. obma's official vehicles through his second term. the 2008 presidential campaign was the first time we heard the expression no drama, obama. it was a compliment from his supporters. now bill plante says critics say
8:06 am
the president is not only no drama but he's no fun and that's hurting his relationship with congress. >> please have a seat everybody. good morning. >> reporter: the morning of the last meeting came to an unusual ground. debt ceiling, gun control, fiscal cliff. but then a reporter asked about the criticism that the president is too insular, doesn't socialize enough. >> most people who know me know i'm a pretty friendly guy. and i like a good party. >> there's sometimes a disconnect with some people. anybody who gets to know president obama, finds him to be just like a normal and fun. >> reporter: presidential historian and cbs news consultant douglas brinkley says there's a reason the president hasn't connected with congress. >> things have changed in washington. characters like ted kennedy who used to be able to be friends with the opposition are gone. he just hasn't been able to find that special bond like ronald
8:07 am
reagan had with tip o'neill on capitol hill. >> reporter: the president reminded reporters on monday he did play a friendly round of golf with house speaker john boehner in 2011. >> i like speaker boehner personally. when we went out and played golf, we had a great time. >> reporter: but mr. obama was quick to add it didn't help to solve the budget impasse. will things be any different when the president begins his second term next week? he seemed to hint they might be. >> now that my girls are older, they don't want to spend as much time with me anyway, aisle probably be calling around to look for somebody to play cards with me or something because i'm getting kind of lonely in this big house. maybe a whole bunch of members of the house republican congress want to come over and socialize more. >> reporter: and if they don't -- >> remember, barack obama has over 50% public approval rating. congress is around 17% on a good day. so the blame here may not be on the president.
8:08 am
he seems pretty well liked in the united states. >> he might become a party animal? >> that's right. >> look. in the words of a great old movie line, what we have here is a failure to communicate. i mean the white house feels that he's not going to get any ground with the congress that wanted him out of office after his first four years. the republicans on the hill feel that all he does is preach to them and tell them why he's right instead of trying to find the middle ground. >> but, bill, the president frames this as not socializing with republicans, but the beef in washington is many democratic members of congress feel that they have not been treated fairly or get the kind of phone calls from a president that they have in the past. >> right. stroked, coddled, invited to dinner, all of those things. and you know what? that's true. and democrats will admit it privately but they won't say it publicly. >> why doesn't he do it with democrats? you might understand it doesn't serve a good purpose with
8:09 am
republicans or very good at getting them to agree. democrats are the people who are his friends and on his side. >> sure. he's not that social for one thing. he'd prefer to do business in a straight-up straightforward manner. he doesn't get the schmoozing part. lyndon johnson did, bill clinton did. he doesn't. >> so even though the kids are going to be out of the house, so to speak, you don't expect him to change? >> i think it would being a great. designee just made a joke the kids are moving out, come on over. >> it's

we reported yesterday on a study showing one out of four americans is using 401(k) retirement money to pay for current expenses. most advisers will tell you that borrowing from your future is a risky move. jill schlesinger is an editor at large from "cbs moneywatch." jill how are people borrowing from their 401(k)? >> everyplace plan exclusively has a provision where you can create a loan. you lend yourself your own money. there is usually a limitation maybe 50% of the account value up to $50,000. here's what happens. let's say you had $20,000 in your account. you borough $10,000. that $10,000 is not working for
8:19 am
you. that's important. and the money that remains in there keeps growing, no problem. you have to repay that loan through payroll deduction. you have five years to do it. there is one huge risk with a loan. that is if you leave or you get fired or paid off, that loan has to be repaid within 60 days. if not, you get whacked. it's considered a distribution. loans can be dangerous. >> if you get fire, you have no money to pay back. we were raised i always heard do not touch your own 401(k) unless it's a crisis. what continuestitutes a crisis? >> ir sk says says there are hardship cases. if you have to pay if there's a dealt, you can take a hardship with draw. don't forget. it is taxed. you don't get to waive the tax.
8:20 am
you put the money in the account. it hasn't been taxed yet. if you pull the money out, guess what, you pay the income tax and you pay a penalty of 10% if you're under the age of 59 1/2 although there are some events to qualify to get a waiver of that 10% penalty. either way a loan or withdrawal, even if it's a hardship withdrawal is a real last step in your financial life. you don't want to do that. >> and are most people using the hardship withdrawal. is that what you're finding? >> i think it's a mix. i think people were very damaged in the recession and they didn't have a lot of choices. some people did qualify for the hardship choices. some realize the loan might be better, but, again, these are the last measures. we don't want you to do it. >> how does it affect social security? >> it doesn't really affect social security. everyone says well i don't have the money to put in retirement or i'll work longer. those are precarious
8:21 am
assumptions. if you're under 55, i think it's likely to change in your lifetime. you can't counseled on it. it's supposed to be about 40% of your earnings. you've got two other pillars, retirement savings and cash savings. that's the social security part. that's important. in terms of the overall, what's interesting to me is when you have a whole group of people who are literally relying on i'll work longer in my retirement that is ooh also dangerous. what if you can't work? what if your employer doesn't want to keep someone over the age 60. they say 70 is the new 65. that's if you're lucky enough to keep your job. >> i like 70 is the new 65. >> thank you. from concept cars to volkswagen's new suv, we'll look at the cars getting the attention at the detroit auto show. you're watching "cbs this morning." your local news is next.

8:31 am
baker came back from a six-year injury layoff last summer and made it to the fourth round at wimbledon. as jeff glor reports, baker was playing in the australian open earlier today when bad fortune struck again. >> reporter: leading in his second round match at the australian open, baker was trying to make his first mark in the first tennis major of 2013. on a routine backhand he pulled up lame and had to be taken away in a wheelchair. his opponent could hardly believe it. >> he's the last guy i want that to happen to. the last guy because baker's career was just getting back on track against extraordinary odds. a decade ago he was the number two ranked junior tennis player in the world. in 2005 he beat a young novak djokovic followed by a stunning upset of the world's ninth ranked player at the u.s. open. in august, however, he told us how that match almost became his last. >> i knew something was going on
8:32 am
and it was the start of the downward spiral. >> reporter: baker needed hip surgery followed by a never ending list of medical issues. five major surgeries. two more on the hip, an elbow reconstruction. he was sidelined for six years. >> was there a point when you said, i'm not going do it anymore? i can't. >> never got to that point. maybe close to that point, i think, after i had the tommy john surgery i told myself, you know, this is probably the last straw, i'm not going to keep having surgeries. but i never got to that one point where i said, hey, i'm throwing in the white towel. >> reporter: in 2011 he was finally able to start competing again and last april he won the savannah challenger in georgia and then came wimbledon, unseated overlooked baker made the round of 16, dropping only one set along the way. >> you surprised a ton of people with what happened at wimbledon. did you surprise yourself?
8:33 am
>> yeah. i think i'd be lying if i didn't say i was surprised a little bit to play my first ever main draw wimbledon, get to the fourth round. that was kind of amazing. >> reporter: in just over a year since his return, brian baker has risen nearly 400 spots in the tennis rankings. and as of today he's number 57 in the world. but now with a torn meniscus, the last man who deserved a bad break is stuck with another one. brian baker will try to come back all over again. for "cbs this morning," i'm jeff glor. >> man. i mean it's just incredible to be that good, to be coming back, and then to have it happen again. >> i know. we were pulling for him. so painful to watch. oh, brian, we're cheering you on. >> good luck. the north american international auto show is off and running in detroit. some of the new concept cars we see each year are turning up in showrooms down the road. here to show you what's exciting this year is jonathan linkov. he's managing editor of the consumer reports cars.

welcome. what's new coming out of this auto show both in style and in technology? >> well, probably making green sexy. is the cadillac, a coupe version of the chevy volt. 35 miles on electricity alone. if you have a short commute, you could save a lot of money. you get 300 miles on a full tank of gas because it has a backup gas engine. >> how much is it pricing for? >> unreleased right now. but it's in the $40,000 range. but the volt $50,000, $60,000. >> it's like when you look at a house and they say call the realtor, you know it's going to be a doozy. >> come on down. >> come on down. when you talk about the best bang for your buck, what's the best? >> nissan. four-door hatchback. 35 miles combined, and you can get 40 miles a gallon on the highway. we didn't like consumer points to the nissan versus sedan.
8:35 am
if they make it a nice inside, nice material, good mileage, a pleasant car to drive but at a good price point where it holds its value this could be a good idea down the road. >> what about the idea of autonomous driving? >> the technology is here. not in one package. we're going to see it 15 years down the road. but with stability control, lean departure monitoring, blind spot monitoring, distance sensing cruise control. you can actually drive in some situations in bumper-to-bumper traffic and the car will guide itself along the road. audi and lexus are both showing those at the show. you're going to see that kind of technology creep in from the top car down. >> is it true no one should underestimate the appeal of a good old-fashioned pickup truck. >> that's really true. as it goes with pickup trucks -- >> you know what i mean. i know you do. >> they're useful not great in cities. >> they're a indication of something, the sales of pickup trucks. what is that? >> they're an indication of how the economy is going. the economy is growing people are buying pickup trucks because we're building.

8:49 am
elementary school in nutant connecticut. the president is expected to call for an over all of gun laws and an extension of mental health services. the plan is based on recommendations from vice president joe bide won met with a number of groups including gun control advocates and the national rifle association. the president invited families of the newtown victims and survivors to join him at this white house event along with children from around the country who wrote to him about gun violence after the school shooting. major garrett is our chief white house correspondent and joins us in the room now. >> let's go the broad categories of the president's proposals a. fixed gun control. it would give with four principles. an assault weapons ban. stronger than the one that was in place from 1994 to 2004. a ban on high capacity magazines. a universal background check system for all gun sales in the country. and a new gun trafficking law
8:50 am
at the federal level to stiffen penalties for illegal gun sales. another broad category of mental health and school safety. more counselors and safety officers in schools. he will also seek to have new antibullying education in those schools. more mental health counselors and more assistance for those who deal with mental health issues. >> major, thank you very much. and the vice president and president have just entered the auditorium. let's listen in. >> the innocents who were murdered 33 days ago. our heart goes out to. you show incredible courage. incredible courage being here and the president and i are going to do everything in our power to honor the memory of your children and your wives with the work we take up here today. it's been 33 days since the nation's heart was broken by the horrific senseless violence that took place at sandy hook
8:51 am
elementary school. 20. 20 beautiful first graders gunned down in a place that's supposed to be their second sanctuary. six, six members of the staff killed trying to save those children. it's literally been hard for the nation to comprehend. hard for the nation to fathom. and i know for the families who are here, time is not measured in days. it's measured in minutes. in seconds. since you received that news. another minute without your daughter. another minute without your son. another minute without your wife. another minute without your mom. i want to personally thank chris and lin mcdonald who lost a beautiful daughter grace. and the other parents who i had a chance to speak to for their
8:52 am
suggestions and for, again, just for their -- the courage of all of you to be here today. i admire -- i admire the grace and the resolve that you all are showing. and i must say, i've been deeply affected by your faith as well. and the president and i are going to do everything we can to match the resolve you demonstrated. no one can know for certain if this senseless act could have been prevented. but we have a moral obligation to do everything in our power to diminish the prospect that something like this could happen again. as the president knows, i've worked in this field a long time in the united states senate. having shared a committee that had jurisdiction over these issues of guns and crime. and having drafted the first gun violence legislation.
8:53 am
the last gun violence legislation i should say. and i have no illusions about what we're up against. or how hard the task is in front of us. but i also have never seen the nation's conscience so shaken by what happened at sandy hook. the world has changed. and it's demanding action. it's in this context the president asked me to put together, along with cabinet members, a set of recommendations about how we should proceed to meet that moral obligation we have. and toward that end, the cabinet members and i sat down with 229 groups. not just individuals, representing groups. 229 groups from law enforcement agency to see public health officials, to gun officials, to gun advocacy groups, to sports men and hunters and religious leaders. and i've spoken with members of congress and both side of the aisle have had extensive conversations with mayors and governors and county officials. and the recommendations we
8:54 am
provide to the president on monday call for executive actions. he can sign legislation he could call for and long term research should be under taken. based on the emerging consensus we heard from all the groups with whom we spoke. including some of you who were victims of this god awful occurrence. ways to keep guns out of wrong hands. as well as ways to take comprehensive action to prevent violence in the first place. we should do as much as we can. as quickly as we can. and we cannot let it be the enemy of the good. some of what you'll hear from the president will happen immediately. some will take time. but we have begun. and we're starting here today. and we resolve to continue this fight. during the meetings that we held we met with a young man today. collin goddard is here. he was one of the survivors of the virginia tech massacre. he was in classroom. he calls himself one of the
8:55 am
lucky seven. and he'll tell you, he was shot four times on that day. and he has three bullets that are still inside him. and when i asked collin about what he thought we should be doing he said that i'm not here because of what happened to me. i'm here because of what happened to me keeps happening to other people. and we have to do something about it. collin, we will. collin, i promise you we will. this is our intention. we must do what we can now. and there's no person who is more committed to acting on this moral obligation we have than the president of the united states of america. ladies and gentlemen, president barack obama. >> thank you. thank you. thank you. [ applause ]
8:56 am
thank you so much. thank you everybody. please have a seat. good afternoon everybody. let me begin by thanking our vice president joe biden for your dedication, joe, to this issue. for bringing so many different voices to the table. because while reducing gun violence is a complicated challenge, protecting our children from harm shouldn't be a dismissive one. over a month since the tragedy from newtown we heard from so many. and obviously none have affected us more than the families of those gorgeous children and their teachers and guardians who were lost. so we're grateful to all of you for taking the time to be here and recognizing that we honor their memories in part by doing everything we can to prevent this from happening again. but we also heard from some
8:57 am
unexpected people. in particular, i started getting a lot of letters from kids. four of them are here today. grant fritz. julia stokes. and taja good. they're pretty representative of some of the messages that i got. these are some pretty smart letters from some pretty smart young people. hannah, a third grader. you can go ahead and wave hannah, that's you. hannah wrote, i feel terrible for the parents who lost their children. i love my country. and i want everybody to be happy and safe. and then grant, go ahead and wave grant. grant said, i think there should be some changes. we should learn from what happened at sandy hook.
8:58 am
i feel really bad. and then julia said, julia, where are you? there you go. i'm not scared for my safety. i'm scared for others. i have four brothers and sisters and i know i would not be able to bear the thought of losing any of them. and these are our kids. this is what they're thinking about. and so what we should be thinking about is our responsible to care for them. and shield them from harm. and give them the tools they need to grow up. and do everything that they're capable of doing. not just to pursue they're own dreams but to help build this country. this is our first task as a society. keeping our children safe. this is how we will be judged. and their voices should compel
8:59 am
us to change. and that's why last month i asked joe to lead an effort along with members of my cabinet. to come up with some concrete steps we can take right now to keep our children safe. to help prevent mass shootings. to reduce the broader epidemic of gun violence in this country. and we can't put this off any longer. just last thursday, as tv networks were covering one of joe's meetings, on this topic, news broke of another school shooting, this one in california. in the month since 20 precious children and six brave adults were violently taken from us at sandy hook elementary, more than 900 of our fellow americans have reportedly died at the
